Hey there! I'm Kelsey, I'm a 20 year old woman trying her best to become an artist, an animator, and a YouTuber. I really love Marvel, DC, Doctor Who, Supernatural, Disney/Pixar, Vikings, Once Upon A Time, Reign, Merlin, video games, and a whole bunch of movies. I do love horror so from time to time you will see me reblog it but it will be tagged with "#horror", but if you need a specific tag for something don't hesitate to let me know. That pretty much goes for anything else too. My taste in music is extremely mixed and I love history, mythology, traveling, fashion, and makeup. i also watch a few YouTubers and Let's Players.

Magneto’s Helmet Involved?

A correspondence between Robert F. Kennedy and an unknown corroborator about coming up with a solution to manage RFK’s abilities…It looks like RFK had psionic powers where he could absorb other people’s memories. They thought the helmet could help.

Mohawk Storm by Babs Tarr from Long Beach Comic Con 2014.

I asked Babs if she was interested in drawing Mohawk Storm. She was stoked.

Status, Natasha?


Mutants and Inhumans, brutally beaten and piled in the street - like garbage. What has happened here? Dear God, why? Why again?!

This is why it makes me so angry when people erase that Magneto is a Holocaust Survivor in their critiques of the diversity of the X-Men movies. Do you have any idea what it means to descendants of survivors to have a character in mainstream cinema say “never again,” with its intended purpose and then to have what happened to him dismissed as not representing “real” oppression because he’s White?

Like, really?

Here’s this popular, mainstream character, and people use him as a stand-in for everything from their shipping head-cannons to metaphors for every oppressed group except the one he is actually from. He’s a Jewish Holocaust Survivor. This is explicit damn text. He had children with a Romani Holocaust Survivor. This is also explicit damn text.

Anti-semitism is real. The Holocaust happened. It killed people who don’t neatly fit into the White/PoC binary tumblr loves so much. And just like in Magneto’s nightmares, if we aren’t vigilant, it can happen again.

Magneto is your damned reminder.



You not finding me attractive is not going to stop me from being attractive.





A young Jewish refugee with her Chinese playmates. Shanghai, China (x)

Between 1933 and 1941, it is estimated that 20,000 Jews escaped persecution by fleeing to the Chinese port of Shanghai. Shanghai was one of the few places in the world that would accept Jewish refugees at this time, Japan being another.

i am furious that i am just now learning about this important fact.

Because it has nothing to do with the USA being the superhero and saving all the Jews

its inevitable that when the new thor comic is released we shall gain 100 new thora fancasts. but before you photoshop charlize theron i implore you to consider beth pheonix


dear mr. baxter, i've seen your work from gravity falls and so i looked into this blog! your work is truly inspiring to me. i've wanted to animate 2-D characters my whole life. but sadly, i get really discouraged because whenever i talk about becoming an animator to someone they scoff and say it's a pointless or dying business. is there really any chance someone could get into cool projects like that? could you give me some tips or pointers on how to maybe make that aspiration a reality?


Hi spoopybaka, don’t get discouraged! I actually have to do hand-drawn animation. I can’t help it. It’s just who I am. So, if someone wants to pay me for it, yay! But if not, I’ll do it anyway. It’s my art, and nobody can stop you doing your art! It’s true, hand-drawn is not the default technique for most animation in the US anymore, especially in feature films, but there is still hand-drawn work out there, in commercials and television, and yes, the occasional theatrical project. They are important skills to learn for any animator. Right now I make a living doing CG animation, which is fine, and I definitely recommend acquiring those CG skills as an animator (which is really just learning a couple of software packages) to make you more employable. But character animation is character animation and the list of differences in animation technique between CG and hand-drawn is remarkably small. At the heart of it you are still communicating character and story through sequential pictures. People who scoff don’t know what they’re talking about.

Hand-drawn animation will always be my art. I find the experience of creating it and watching it magical, when compared with a digitally simulated world where there is no surprise that everything moves. But a drawing that springs to life? That’s magic!
